Is Your Birthday Coming Up?

January 2, 2019 Alex Hoaglund

What do you do for your birthday every year? Dinner with family, a night out with friends, maybe even a birthday trip…

These are all great and you totally deserve to celebrate yourself! But, there’s one other thing you can do each year for your birthday to make it a little more special – give back! #NewBirthdayTradition

As we get older, we realize more and more that it’s not always about the presents you get on your birthday. We tend to appreciate experiences and the people around us more and physical gifts less. But, if you have Great Aunt Sally or Grandma Esther who love sending you something, this new tradition will be perfect for them.

With Facebook Fundraisers, it’s easier than ever to set up a quick way to accept donations to a charity that means a lot to you. Facebook makes it extra-easy for you to bring hope to help raise funds for cancer research and bring hope to more than 39,000 Roswell Park patients and their families. Get started here.

Need help setting up your birthday fundraiser? Feel free to reach out to me directly at and I can help you get your page set up!
